FarmStrong

PORT ANGELES — Peninsula College’s Maier Hall, 1502 E. Lauridsen Blvd., will host FarmStrong, a four piece country music group at 7 tonight.

General admission is $10.

Tickets are available at www.brownpapertickets.com or at the door on a space-available basis as seating is limited.

FarmStrong is an acoustic music collaboration of four Olympic Peninsula musicians.

Jim Faddis fronts the band on rhythm guitar and vocals, Cort Armstrong plays lead guitar with a finger-picking style, Rick Meade is a multi-instrumentalist and John Pyles brings 50 years of bluegrass and bass playing experience to the band, according to a news release.

FarmStrong recorded their debut album, “Live In Dungeness — The Summer Sessions,” in June 2013 at Dungeness Community Studios. FarmStrong’s second album, “Forever,” was recorded and released in 2015, and features a substantial departure from the bluegrass song bag, including songs from The Band, The Cars, Ry Cooder and Rodney Crowell, according to the release.

This concert is one of three scheduled this academic year by Peninsula College Foundation in support of students and programs at Peninsula College campuses in Forks, Port Angeles and East Jefferson County.
